2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

One of the greatest films ever made: a wonder of sight and sound that is really best appreciated on the big screen. Seeing it again, I feel (as I have felt before) that it may be one of the only films that exists beyond our rationality to justify it. It is a thing of beauty merely because it is; it's almost enough that it exists in the first place. We may never get to the bottom of it, but it almost isn't necessary.
